Websense

  1. was wondering if there was a way to get around websense
    its a proxy filter they installed at my school, and i cant do research projects on a lot of thing because they are filtered. I cant type in war and peace without it filtering it, its annoying. So if you guys could help me out, i'd much appriciate it.

    Suuure you want to get around for "research puposes":rolleyes:
    Anyway, this is how you do it:

    1. Go to babelfish.altavista.com
    2. Under tpye in a url, put in the web address and CHOOSE A LANGUAGE THE SITE IS NOT IN! (ex: if its in english, choose translate from chinese to english or something like that)
    3. enjoy

    Basically, websense blocks by web address, the babelfish site is acting as a proxy. You can also use one of many cgi proxy websites, like anonymizer.ru Eventaully your school will wise up and block the proxy sites like mine did
